A brilliant solution to styling your reception...


Suffolk Wedding Photographer


Today we discovered a really brilliant website! http://www.styleboxe.co.uk/ They sell packages of table decorations which include centre pieces for tables, place name cards, table cards, table plans, table clothes and even cute little tea light holders! The only thing not included is the flowers :) 

Styleboxe take all of the hard work out, you pick the style, tell them how many tables, the names of the tables and they post it all out to you in a neat little box. They cheapest option is £150 for 4 tables and the most expensive box is £600 for 10 tables (they can cater for more tables on request). We can't imagine how much time, money and effort this would normally take, so we did some research... 

We've taken a styleboxe and tried to find exact replicas of the pieces included on the internet to do a direct price comparison. 

Here is one of our favourites, the country bloom box, priced at £600 for 10 tables. 

Bursting with colours and a world of prettiness…Our county theme represents everything beautiful… Think English Gardens… Think pretty blooms flowing in the wind on a hot summers day.Just stunning! Perfect for any outdoor wedding!

If bought with styleboxe instead, thats a saving of £95.50. They have a variety of boxes to suit all weddings, tastes and also lifestyles... who really has the time for all that effort?

We’re Neil & Lisa and we LOVE weddings; the activity, the settings and the people who come together for a special day. As a couple we’re able to offer our own perspectives on the wedding, with a feel for the Bride and Grooms roles and to ensure that we’re always in the right place to catch the big moments (we don’t spoil your day by feeling ‘in the way’.)  For us, being a part of your special day, catching the emotions and happiness gives us both real satisfaction and we think this shines through in our images.

We hope you enjoy our site and can find the things you need to make a decision about your photographers for the wedding day. If there's something you don't see or do need to talk about please do get in contact either by telephone or by using our enquiry form (both) on the contact page. We're looking forward to hearing from you soon.
